Abstract

As a reaction to the Russian occupation of Khiva in 1873 the ruler, Muhammad Rahīm Khān II (1864-1910), opted for a cultural policy that can be considered as a strategy of resistance against the invaders and the modernity they brought with them. This led, in a period of political decline for the Khān, to a remarkable cultural and literary flowering, in which at least some modernity, such as the printing press, was included.
